Performance archive 2015 Elina Pirinen, Maria Saivosalmi, Jassem Hindi, Ruairí Donovan, Cathy Walsh: Meadow, meadow, meadow
Meadow, meadow, meadow is a triptych by choreographers Elina Pirinen and Maria Saivosalmi, French – Palestinian performance artist Jassem Hindi and Irish theatre artists Ruairí Donovan and Cathy Walsh.
A dance that is an axe for the frozen sea inside us, relentlessly making ritual objects for a tribe that doesn’t exist, a lingering sentence on one horse and seven hearts, a fanfare heralding a renewed ethos of intimacy.
Together with lighting designer Heikki Paasonen, the heralds and a surprise ensemble founded for the triptych create a delicate avalanche of peculiar bodies, voices and landscapes. The weight carried is the perception of all that is essential for the human condition, like a slow storm in the solar plexus.
